What's included: Hegen Slow Flow teat comes in a pack of two, allowing parents to have a spare teat on hand or use it for twins.

The Hegen slow flow teat offers several benefits for both parents and babies. Here are some advantages of using the Hegen slow flow teat:

  1. Mimics breastfeeding: The slow flow teat is designed to closely resemble the natural flow of breast milk. This helps to prevent nipple confusion in babies who are both bottle-fed and breastfed, making it easier for them to transition between the two.

  2. Reduces colic and gas: The slow flow teat allows milk to flow at a controlled pace, which can help prevent babies from swallowing excessive air during feeding. This can reduce the likelihood of colic, gas, and discomfort.

  3. Promotes proper digestion: By providing a slower flow rate, the Hegen slow flow teat enables babies to feed at a pace that is more suitable for their developing digestive system. It allows them to control the milk flow and prevents overfeeding, which can lead to issues like spit-up and indigestion.

  4. Supports bonding: The Hegen teat is designed with a wide base that allows babies to latch on comfortably, promoting a natural feeding position. This encourages skin-to-skin contact and bonding between the parent and baby during feeding time.

  5. Easy transition: The Hegen system is designed to be modular, allowing parents to switch between different teat flow rates easily. Starting with the slow flow teat and gradually progressing to faster flow rates as the baby grows helps facilitate a smooth transition during the weaning process.

It's important to note that the specific benefits may vary depending on the baby's individual needs and feeding preferences. It's recommended to observe your baby's feeding behavior and consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns or questions about selecting the appropriate teat flow rate.
